Brachycephalic syndrome in dogs, also called congenital obstructive disease of the upper airway is described as a continuous process of anatomical and functional disorders of the respiratory and digestive systems. The syndrome is characterized by stenotic nares, elongated soft palate, everted laryngeal saccules and in advanced stages by laryngeal collapse. Clinically, dogs show signs of respiratory distress, such as: severe dyspnea, wheezing, coughing, snoring, exercise intolerance, increased…

TLDR
This is a complex condition, recognized primarily in brachycephalic breeds, that results in varying degrees of upper airway obstruction and results in distortion and collapse of the arytenoid cartilages of the larynx.

Brachycephalic airway obstructive syndrome in dogs: 90 cases (1991-2008).
TLDR
The prevalence of components of BAOS in brachycephalic dogs of this study differed from that reported previously, especially for everted tonsils, but no specific BAOS component made dogs more likely to have complications.
Surgical correction of brachycephalic syndrome in dogs: 62 cases (1991-2004).
TLDR
Surgical treatment of brachycephalic syndrome in dogs appeared to be associated with a favorable long-term outcome, regardless of age, breed, specific diagnoses, or number and combinations of diagnoses.
Nasopharyngeal turbinates in brachycephalic dogs and cats.
TLDR
The presence of nasal turbinates in the nasopharynx (nasopharyngeal turbinates) may play a role in upper airway obstruction in the brachycephalic airway syndrome.
Canine brachycephalic airway syndrome: pathophysiology, diagnosis, and nonsurgical management.
TLDR
The components of this syndrome are described and acute emergency management and long-term conservative management of these patients are focused on.
The Anatomy of the Dog Soft Palate. II. Histological Evaluation of the Caudal Soft Palate in Brachycephalic Breeds With Grade I Brachycephalic Airway Obstructive Syndrome
TLDR
The morphology of the caudal soft palate in brachycephalic dogs with Grade I BAOS is described to identify potential features possibly favoring the pathogenesis of BAOS and establish baseline information on the morphological basis of the soft palate thickening in brachydactylic dogs.
Folded fl ap palatoplasty for treatment of elongated soft palates in 55 dogs
TLDR
The folded flap palatoplasty can be recommended as a safe and efficient technique, particularly valuable for excessively thick elongated soft palates, and improvement of respiratory clinical signs was observed within 15 days after surgery in 85 % of the cases.
